Prayer for Strength When You’re Weak

Prayer for Strength When You're Weak | by Jamie Rohrbaugh | FromHisPresence.comDo you feel weak today, almost like you’re going to faint? Do you feel drained and exhausted spiritually, emotionally, or physically? If so, the Lord gave me a prayer for strength today that I believe will help you.

Father God promises that He will help us whenever we need it. His Word says so. Look at just a few of His beautiful promises:

God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble. Therefore we will not fear, even though the earth be removed, and though the mountains be carried into the midst of the sea; though its waters roar and be troubled, though the mountains shake with its swelling. Selah” (Psalm 46:1-3).

and:

Why do you say, O Jacob, and speak, O Israel: ‘My way is hidden from the Lord, and my just claim is passed over by my God’? Have you not known? Have you not heard? The everlasting God, the Lord, the Creator of the ends of the earth, neither faints nor is weary.

His understanding is unsearchable. He gives power to the weak, and to those who have no might He increases strength.

Even the youths shall faint and be weary, and the young men shall utterly fall, but those who wait on the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles, they shall run and not be weary, they shall walk and not faint” (Isaiah 40:29-31).

and:

“But the salvation of the righteous is from the Lord; He is their strength in the time of trouble. And the Lord shall help them and deliver them; He shall deliver them from the wicked, and save them, because they trust in Him” (Psalm 37:39-40).

and:

“But You, O Lord, are a shield for me, my glory and the One who lifts up my head” (Psalm 3:3).

Scripture is full of promises like this.

No matter why you’re weak or in need of help, Father has promised to strengthen us when we are weak.

All we have to do is pray.

So this morning, the Lord gave me this prayer for strength. If you are feeling weak right now for any reason–whether that weakness is physical, spiritual, or emotional–then please pray this prayer out loud.

By the way: this prayer is all God’s Word, and He’ll answer it immediately. When I prayed it as I was writing it out, I actually felt dramatically better before I even got to the end of the prayer. Thank You, Lord! So you should watch for His immediate answers like that too. He’ll strengthen you just like He strengthened me! 🙂

So if you’re feeling weak, pray this prayer for strength with me, out loud, right now:

Father God, I come before You in Jesus’ name.

Father, Your Word says that I can come boldly before Your throne of grace, that I may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need. Your Word also says that You are an ever-present Help in time of trouble.

Father, I want to thank You for these promises. In these precious words of Yours, and so many more, You promise me that You’ll help me when I need it.

  • You’ve promised me that I’ll never see the righteous forsaken, nor my offspring begging bread.
  • You’ve promised me that Your grace is sufficient for me, for Your strength is made perfect in weakness.
  • You’ve promised me that You shall supply ALL my needs–not some, but ALL–according to Your RICHES in glory in Christ Jesus.
  • And You said that I should be anxious for nothing; but in everything, with prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, I am to make my requests known to You–and Your peace, which passes all understanding, will guard my heart and mind in Christ Jesus.

Thank You, Father. Thank You for Your Word. Thank You for Your promises.

Lord, I’m cashing in on these promises right now.

Father, You know I feel so weak. I feel like I’m going to collapse. And it is not Your will for me to be weak, but it IS Your will to strengthen me right now.

So, Abba, I need You. I need Your help. I praise You right now, Lord; and I ask that, as I praise You, You would lift the spirit of heaviness off me. Take away the heavy weights that are pushing me down, and show Yourself to me as my Glory, and the Lifter of my head.

Father God, in Jesus’ name, I ask right now that You would strengthen me physically.

  • Help my heart to beat strongly in my chest.
  • Let my blood pressure be perfectly stable.
  • Let my body produce all the correct levels of the right hormones, and none of the wrong ones.
  • Infuse my bones, joints, and muscles with Your own strength.
  • Let my glucose and insulin come into perfect alignment right now with where they should be.
  • Let my stomach and digestive system process all my food perfectly.
  • Let my brain rest at perfect peace and in perfect strength.
  • Let my eyesight be perfect and my back be strong, in Jesus’ name.

Father God, I pray also that You would strengthen my spirit right now.

Fill me with Your Holy Spirit. Fill me with hope. Let hope arise in me right now in Jesus’ name. Let faith arise right now in Jesus’ name. Let Your Word and Your fire burn in my bones. Fill me with Your motivation, inspiration, wisdom, and joy right now in Jesus’ name.

Father God, I speak to my soul right now, and I say: “Soul, come to attention in Jesus’ name. Soul, in the matchless name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, you line up with my spirit, which is filled with the Holy Spirit. Soul, bless and give thanks to the Lord, for He is good, and His mercies endure forever.”

Father God, please help me to remember all the works of Your hands that You have done in my life and are still doing–both now and these many years past.

Fill my mind with Your testimony. Remind me of Your promises. Show me once again how far You have brought me, and give me a grateful and thankful heart.

Abba Father, thank You that You will never leave me nor forsake me.

Thank You that You will never forsake any of Your saints. Thank You for working all things together for my good right now, for Your Word says You are doing that for all who love You and are called according to Your purpose. Thank You, Father.

Papa God, in Jesus’ name, I ask that You would order my steps today.

Show me what to do and when to do it. Show me also what not to do, and help me not to do anything that isn’t Your will for me.

I bind off every distraction that would prevent me from hearing Your voice or obeying You, in Jesus’ name. I loose my ears to hear You today, Father God, in Jesus’ name; and I loose myself into perfect obedience to Your voice today in Jesus’ name.

Thank You, Father God, that by Your grace through the blood of Jesus, I am completely free from sin and alive to You. So please keep me from sinning against You today. Help me to humble myself under Your mighty hand, O God; and in due time, Father God, YOU lift me up.

Father God, I have cast all my cares upon You, for You care for me.

Thank You for listening. Thank You for helping me. Thank You that even right now, Your angels are helping me and YOU are helping me and answering my prayer.

Papa God, thank You that right now, my heart feels stronger, my bones feel stronger, my mind feels clearer, and I can do everything You tell me to do. Thank You for instructing me and teaching me in the way I should go. Thank You for guiding me with Your eye upon me.

Thank You, Father God. I love You, and I say: “Not unto us, O Lord, not unto us, but to Your name give glory” (Psalm 115:1). May You be glorified in my life and in Your temple, which is my body, today.

In Jesus’ name, Father, I thank You. Amen.”

  19. I have not been reading this blog for a while and two days ago I was checking my mails at work, feeling physically weak (and somehow spiritually weak). I had missed church the previous Sunday and I had not been well since. On the physically side, I have been having this consistent cough that wont just go away, I have not taken medication for it. Somehow in between my days I just felt like not eating anything at all. I keep praying to God to give me strength as I am feeling weak. So I came to work, put on my brave mask and tried to get on with my life, but I kept feeling weak. For some reason I opened my emails and out popped an email from you Jamie. At that moment I felt like logging out my emails because I just didn’t have the strength to read, but then I saw the heading and I was intrigued. I read the blog, and saved the prayer on my phone to read at home. Fast forward to that night, I prayed that prayer out loud and it feels good to say that your prayer helped me a lot Jamie. It couldn’t have come at a better time. I thank God for you and your life. Bless you!

    1. So glad to have you reading today, Nyax! (Welcome back!) I am thrilled that Holy Spirit blessed and encouraged you today. May you be strengthened indeed again today in body, soul, and spirit, in Jesus’ name!

  20. Meloni Simpson says:

    Jamie,

    Thank you so much for this prayer for strength. As I was reading aloud, I did feel a comfort and a relief from all my junk. This prayer just fit me and my needs and I appreciate your being so wise. Thank you for leading me to the scripture, God’s precious word.

    Years ago a precious lady, older and much wiser than I, told me that when I read the scripture, I should read it aloud and that it would penetrate my heart and mind, and I found that is so true. Once those words are spoken, it does something to your heart and soul.

    Thank you again for your ministry. Hope your day is truly blessed. Love in Jesus Christ.

  21. This was a god sent. I am sitting here at work feeling very sluggish and weak. I found your page while searching for prayers for strength in your body. I prayed the prayer and a song popped up in my mind and it has not left my mind. It is the perfect song for right now. It refers to us putting our hope in god and him being the everlasting god. Thank you so much! I have shared this prayer with my coworker. Continue to stay on the battlefield for the lord.

  22. Meloni Simpson says:

    Jamie-
    I just wanted to tell you that this prayer is just what I need right now. I could definitely feel the presence of the Holy Spirit. His word is so precious and I appreciate your bringing it alive in this prayer and it all of your prayers. Thank you for your encouragement which always lifts me up.

    I pray that you will continue to follow God’s calling on your life. Praying for you and your precious family to be blessed. Love you in Jesus’ name

  25. As I prayed this prayer, my heart began to feel light, the heaviness lifted off slowly.. The prayer ministers to my current situation and it is as if it was written just for and for today. God’s mercies are new every day and this is evident in this prayer. I searched for prayers today because I felt I have no prayer left in me. l felt so weak and exhausted but the Lord had this prayer prepared for me today.

    I will pray it several times today because it is giving me the spiritual, emotional and physical healing and strength I need. God bless you for obeying His Word and sharing with other brethren. Thank you

  26. I felt so much peace and calmness around me when I prayed. This prayer came just in time. Thanks Jamie

  27. Anita Murphy says:

    Thank you Jamie, from a mother’s heart. This blessed me in the deep parts, those
    parts that were there for years, but got covered with sorrow due to a very unfortunate
    accident my son had from a faulty, brand new, step ladder. He broke his left wrist and bruised the other, had surgery, the doctor put a plate in and he is now in a cast and going to physical therapy. I am so deeply thankful for His presence with us in and through this all.
    Nevertheless, I was getting a bit discouraged and this lifted me back up where I belong in the promises of our mighty God and Father of our Lord Jesus, His Christ!
    Blessings of the most needed kind, Anita
